See here is where I think people have to temper their expectations for all of these guys. If they had no holes in their games, they would be top-4 d-men. Normally its a consistency issue.

that has been a problem with Stralman for years. he has a few good games, gets cocky, and then has a few bad games where he forgets to use his body positioning on defense.

Woywitka has spurts of solid games followed by a game where he is caught flat-footed and beaten.

These guys all have holes. It doesn't mean they are AHL d-men.
